Help regarding railings & steps
I was wondering if anybody could help me. I have been playing around with the railings and stairs features in max but so far they can not help me achieve what i am trying to create.
Here are 2 pictures to show you what i need to do:
Marked with the green boxes i need to create a metal walkway with railings which follows the rollercoaster track not only in layout but its height profile also.
The same would be required for the top of the rollercoaster lift hill as shown here:
I would need the steps and railings to gradually follow the curve of the track.
I have not come across anything like this being done in max before but i am sure it is possible so please can anyone help?

I would use splines :)

I'll see if I can make you a video tutorial on it. give me some minutes
edit:: sadly I have to go but I started it.
if you still need help by night I'll do the video.
the idea was this:
model this thing. and then use a spline and the spacing tool. then attach all the meshes and use bridge on the holes.

I am sorry if i was not clear, but i do not need the rollercoaster track itself making, just the catwalks/walkways with the handrails.

I dont have a clue on any of those tools though :S I just watched this video, and tried it out.
I managed to create this for the curve in the steps at the top of the rollercoaster but each step tends to start leaning forwards. Is there any way to correct this and make every step level?
